Work is a place of innovation, creativity and hard work. Today, a quick, creative, forward-thinking worker who can accomplish more in less time is most sought after. But the culture of hustling and hard work eventually leads to productivity loss and fatigue.

A 2002 study titled Causes and Management of Stress at Work by the Journal of British Media Journal (BMJ) found, “Situations that are likely to cause stress are those that are unpredictable, uncontrollable, uncertain, ambiguous or unfamiliar, or involving conflict, loss or performance expectations.” Time-limited events, such as the pressure of studies or work deadlines, employment instability, or lengthy commutes, can all lead to stress.
